Natural Building Workshop Testimonials

“This was one of the best experiences of my life.” – Jeff P.,  Straw Bale Workshop 2012 participant

“We have talked nonstop about the workshop. It was GREAT! We learned a lot and are really inspired. I think that anytime I want to learn something I will start with a workshop… I am recommending your workshop to everyone.” - Callie C., Cob Oven Workshop 2013 participant

“I can’t say enough about how much I enjoyed my time in the workshop, at DR and with you and April and the other workshop attendees. Seems like I’ve been talking about it non-stop since I left there. Not only did I learn a lot about cob, but I feel like I learned about many other things as well.” – Paul M., Cob Oven 2013 participant

Natural Building Workshops: Cob Oven“Loved learning things I never knew before, working with other folks, accomplishing things together that we could not do alone, [and] seeing something big come together before our eyes. Ziggy and April were wonderful organizers and hosts. Lots of thought and preparation!” – Margaret W., Timber Framing Workshop 2013 participant

“I am so grateful to those of you in the community who genuinely are on fire to effect positive change for our nation, in its immediacy; and the planet, in the realm beyond the daily carrying of water and chopping wood.” – Shand K., Timber Framing Workshop 2012 participant
